Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "always" by the number of respondents who answered "never, sometimes, usually or always" to the question: In the last 2 months, how often did Extra-Mural staff do each of the following to protect your health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic: Wash their hands before providing person-to-person care?

Notes

The 2021 edition of the Home Care Survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, users are advised to use the survey data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other editions of the survey.
